Surrendered tricolor Basset hound will be euth’ed if not rescued soon

Frankie is a three-year-old tricolor Basset hound who is at risk of being euthanized by the MCACC in Phoenix, Arizona. On February 12, 2021, Frankie was surrendered by his owners – surrendered dogs have no minimum time they must be kept at the shelter, and when a dog has been labeled as “New Hope Rescue” only, his chances for a future become slim.

A shelter volunteer writes:

“This boy an owner surrender. Knows to sit & shake, loves toys, very sweet & loving,  but growls and barks at kids and strangers.”

Shelter notes:

“2/17/2021 NEW HOPE 02/17/21 15:37 New Hope only. Previous owners had dog for 2 years – owners said that he barks/growls at children and strangers, and is unpredictable. Dog had one minor bite to the mother, and then a more severe bite to the mother in 2021 – dog did not do well with the mother or owner’s girlfriend. Due to escalating severity/intensity of bites, dog is not available for adoption to the public. Would benefit from placement with rescue who could further assess and provide non-aversive based training. May be added to the euthanasia list on 3/1/21”
